Hey everyone and welcome to what is the first post in what is going to be a (sadly) very long, very drawn out log. At the end of this process, however, I intend to have a 2000 point Imperial Guard force. But not just any force - a fully converted mash-up of Steam punk, Napoleonics and the 41st Millennia.
This is an idea I have been toying with for some time, a very long time, and watching and reading the Sharpe series (again), more hours than I can count looking at source material and a determination to not have a "run-of-the-mill" Guard army has been a driving force behind the idea. The idea has had its up and downs and lulls and highs, going almost forgotten for a few months whilst I took time to rework my Ork army. But now I feel like it is time to finally really begin this project.
So, I ask you, the brilliant community of Warseer to help me achieve this goal.
I have some ideas for what to convert, what to buy and how to go about putting this mash up together, but it is only a rough idea. I implore anyone willing to pay attention and bear with me for their expertise, their judgements and their criticism when the time comes for models to get built and painted. I especially need sources for some items and ideas on how to convert others.
Cheers for reading,
Please have a look at the latest post, it goes a long way to disregarding some of the information and ideas I have compiled in regards to the standard infantry Guardsmen in some of my preliminary posts, though other people's suggestions are definitely being taken on board, and their ideas are well worth reading.
